Why doesn't the Sprint number increment when I move stories to "New Sprint"?

We recently migrated to Jira Cloud from on on-premise Jira instance.  Now, when I close out a Sprint (with incomplete stories) and choose to move them to "New Sprint", it doesn't automatically increment the Sprint number.  The number is always set back to the Sprint number that we were at when we migrated over.  I have to rename the Sprint to be the correct number.  Very strange.

ie. I've just closed the Sprint 14, and created the Sprint 15. I had to change the sprint name from 11 to 15 manually. 

Hi Diana, have you ever figured out what the issue was? 

I have the same experience in my teams after we moved from on prem to the cloud.

Hi Diana, welcome to the community and cloud.

Something doesn't sound correct here. Anytime that I do this new sprint is created that equates to previous sprint +1. Do you think.

Can you tell me if this is a Company managed project or a team managed project? Would it be possible to share some screenshots what is happening? I am assuming that you don't have any open/planning sprints in the backlog at the time you close the current sprint, correct?
